First visit to Aberystwyth and what a joy. A piece of history in a spectacular setting, which was clearly popular as a place to gather on our visit. Given on the day we visited it was wall to wall sunshine, why not indeed. Despite being busy with folk occupying picnic tables and grass areas in singles, couples and groups there was no rowdy behaviour just a sense of sit back and enjoy. Yes the castle is a ruin (aren't most as a result of the Civil War) but this castle is free and the ruins are in good order and the gardens well-tended. I can think of upteen castles in the UK where you'll pay a not inconsiderable entry fee for less.
Whilst there, do spend a little time respecting the Welsh memorial to the fallen war heroes. It is a grand monument, which would not look out of place in a capital city. It's a credit to the town.
